Markel celebrates 30th year as a public company

December 12, 2016 marked our 30th year as a public company. At the IPO in 1986, the Markel stock price was $8.33 a share, and total operating revenues were about $33.3 million… compared to $5.4 billion in 2015. To commemorate this milestone in our corporate history, we invite you to read Alan, Tony, and Steve’s first letter to shareholders:
